T-Mobile USA may not be launching its LTE network in New York until later this summer, but parts of the city are already seeing its 4G signal. I got connected to T-Mobile's LTE in the Fort Greene, Clinton Hill and Dumbo areas of Brooklyn this weekend. Downloads hit the 15.5Mbit/s mark, according to the RootMetrics speed test app. Other users have spotted it in Flushing, Queens and beyond. T-Mobile has officially said it will cover 100 million U.S. citizens by mid-year and 200 million by the end of 2013 with its LTE service. Staff at its New York stores have said the new network will arrive in the Big Apple this summer. — Dan Jones, Site Editor, Light Reading Mobile

Strong downtown on the westside, haven't been to the LES in the last few days but I'll check this week. An official launch from T-Mobile can't be far off.

I'm seeing LTE signals from Central Harlem down to midtown Manhattan. Uptown the signal is pretty strong but not so much in midtown, although it's better than nothing...

As of today June 14, 2013 I was able to get LTE @ East 40th St & Madison Ave NYC as well as Jersey side of Lincoln Tunnel and Jersey City Heights NJ. It's totally sweet. So far I'm getting 17.61 Mbps on the Speed Test app.

Interestingly you can walk down to Fulton and Grand in my neighborhood and get "4G" and "4G LTE" a few blocks down at Fulton and Vanderbilt, so still pretty patchy in Brooklyn pre-launch.

They could MOCN with Metro's 2x5Mhz LTE and have one 2x10Mhz LTE network running off of T-Mobile's core, for both user base. It's already live in Vegas, hope NYC will be the same way this year.

With lots of users on the network already.

Once T-Mobile users with LTE devices start crowding the networks speeds will temper down too.

Even though T-Mobile has less customers than AT&T most of them are confined to dense metro areas like NYC and subject to the same over-crowding that the other carriers run into despite T-Mobile's advertising otherwise.

Afaik, its a 2x5mhz config right now so will be less than AT&T for now.
